surge. and molly keeping an eye on things for us in new london, connecticut. molly, what's the situation there? >> reporter: you know, rick was telling us how the worst of the storm is over, but there is a lot of danger here. that's the central point that the connecticut authorities have been trying to make to keep people off the roads. the governor went so far to close the highways to all non-essential emmeees. and they still want people to stay off the roads. here's why. massive, massive trees are down, across much of connecticut, particularly here in new london, connecticut. huge trees. a lot of debris on the roads. these kind of mon spheres -- monsters right into homes and they are taking out por lines. that's what make its so dangerous, the big tree, downed power line and it is debris on the road. the things you can't see in the dark and the things the utility companies won't be able to get to, possibly until daylight. there is still about 500,000 to 600,000 people without power, largely due to the situations like this. that situation is constantly changing, they are working to get

the losers. and carl rove joins us. let's go to the issue of undecided. jump in there. those at least watching. >> well, we're likely to see a bump out of this. not much of a bump but a little bit of a bump. first debate is most important of the debates and this typically the winner that gets a point two points out of the debate. there is a close race like this, that matters but to step back just a moment. what matters is that there is to a lesser extent there is the vice presidential debate. soits not over tonight but there is a strong start for mitt romney. and this is an astonishingly good start and a very bad start for the incumbent president of the united states. >> you know looking at the twitter universe which is not a science study and this is seeming to me one thing the governor did get tonight that is important is that there is a lot of enthusiasm. people on the other side of the political spectrum seem to be throwing president obama under the bus. >> that is the result of sort of dimensions of the debate. first is that in this debate, mitt romney succeeded as forward lookin
parts of a speech that have never been seen, in the unedited video. he accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims. why? then senator obama says it's incompetence and then implies racism. he was speak to go an odd yins of african-american ministers at the virginia hampton university. tick a look. >> down in new orleans, where they still have not rebuilt 20 months later, there is a federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government, called the stafford act. and basically, it says, when you get federal money, have you to give a 10% match. the local government's got to come up with 10%. every $10 the federal government comes up with, the local government's got to give a dollar. now, here's the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act. said this is too serious a problem, we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar have you to put in. here's $10. that was the right thing to do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect to yo

. thanks for being with us. greta's next, see you tomorrow night. >> the state department says, his department didn't conclude the attacks stemmed from protests over the video. so why did the obama administration spend more than a week, using the video as an excuse for the terror attack isn't congressional hearing is set for tomorrow. we will talk about the breaking news with ambassador john bolton in just a minute. but first, president obama might need strong medicine, governor mitt romney's growing lead might make him sick. it is surging in the battleground states. now as governor romney is soaring to a political rock star status, another rock star is apologizing for the president. >> it is a little difficult to... to put myself in this position, knowing that i may alien eight a few fans. i am very proud to say that we have had elected our first black president. i am sorry he didn't do a better job. >> a brand-new poll shows governor romney with a 2-point edge over president obama. >> the day after the debate, the ground swell of romney winning was bigger and bigger. i think that
. ronald reagan used to say peace through strength. you can't be strong without a strong economy. the worst thing this president has done is created a reduction strength and the military strength and will of this united states can and with that loss of respect, what we have now is a more unstable and a more dangerous world as a result of this president's failure. >> greta: all right. no question about it, he reminds everybody of it all the time, which he's entitled to do so, because it was bad. do you deny that he's -- i mean, what has he not accomplished in light of the fact that he got -- you know, he walked into office day one with a terrible economy? >> look, ronald reagan picked up a horrible economy, probably even worse in some rests than rs than president obama did, and within two years it was turning around. in the last two years of his first term ronald reagan created 15 million jobs. and president obama's bragging about his 5 million jobs, which barely makes up -- in fact, doesn't make up for what he loves thlostthe first two yearsy makes up for population growth. this president r
the emits in realtime. john bolton joins us. >> good evening. >> greta: now that the paper trail. there is now proof that the state department and the white house knew as this was going on that a terrorist group with links to al-qaeda had claimed responsibility, facebook and twitter yet they came out with that ridiculous video story? >> this is no surprise. we know that the security guards at the compound in benghazi were in cellphone contact with the state department in realtime. technology being what it is. they don't send old-fashioned and cables in times of great urgency. they send e-mails. apparently we've got several of them that were widely distributed in the united states government. it's not surprisingly because the people on the ground in benghazi knew the security environment they faced and expected it. they had been cabling back asking for security enhancements. this is playing out of everything they worried about, now as you say, there is a paper trail. it's much harder to sweep away. >> greta: according to what we can piece at 4:05 local time united states, 10:05 in

martin o'malley joins us. good evening, governor. can you give me an assessment of your state's condition? >> sure, greta. right now it's kind of high tide and ocean city is really getting whipped by those big, big waves which are going over the boardwalk a bit there, but ocean city overall, the evacuation went well there. some of the bigger challenges we saw were inside the bay in somerset county tonight where we had a number of people that were stranded there as the waters came up in the tides of the bay. a number of them were evacuated. others are sheltering in place on the second floor of homes where the first floor is filled with water. what we're undergoing right now is for the next 12 hours, there's going to be that awful sound o of trees cracking as the heavy winds whip over maryland, knocking down trees, knocking down power lines, and knocking out electricity to lots of citizens. right now we stand at 322,921 people that are without power, and i suspect that that number will climb up wards towards a million within the next few hours. >> greta: what about the chesapeake bay bridge
